According to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner “an intoxicated book lover broke the glass in one of the Noel Wien Library’s front doors to gain access after hours Tuesday night.
According to library director Melissa Harter, the man “really wanted to read” and didn’t realize the library was closed.
“He wasn’t here very long. He walked in, the cleaning crew said ‘I’m sorry, we’re closed,’ and then he went out the other door,” Harter said. “He was inebriated and didn’t know what he was doing.”
